Olivier M., Carré C., Buecher E., Braconnot J-C., Moitié M, Prejger F., Gasparini S., Stemmann L. (2015) Temporal evolution of zooplankton from 1959 to 2010 from Regent net in the Northwestern Mediterranean Sea

The Observatoire of Villefranche sur Mer supports the daily sampling of zooplankton since 1966 at a time series station located at the entrancy of the Bay of Villefranche sur Mer. Samples were collected by a horizontal tow at 5 layers, using a Regent net. The sampling site is located at the mouth of the Bay over a bathymetry of 80m and is thus open to the Ligurian Sea. Zooplankton abundance was counted by specialist at OOV under microscopes. more

The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 1,517 records. 2 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record.
